Well for all if us who follow Southwest we had a thread in here a couple of years ago about what cities Southwest had actually dropped and BPt was on that short list. Well I am happy to say today we had two Southwest planes on the ground at one time at BPT due to diversions from Houston. We never had this happen even when BPT was a served city by Southwest. Unfortunately I could not get any photos. Anyway sure was nice to see Southwest back even though it was only for about an hour. If Houston could only be so kind to have bad weather daily we may be blessed with regular Southwest service once again  Smile!!

If I remember there were only 4-5 WN flights during weekdays to DAL but I don't know how many planes overnighted but it is possible there may have been 2 overnighters but most probably not. At one time I was hired by the old Conquest to work in BPT but I turned it down.

Why would you want SWA back in Beaumont??? How about some 757-300's from IAH. Now that would be nice. I'd just bid turns.


Actually flown: EMB-120 EMB-145 B717 B737 B757 B767

Effects of Tropical Storm Erin?

Yes, some spots around the Houston Metro area have already received over 9 1/2 inches of rain so far today, and there's more coming.

The two that dropped into BPT were SWA9 and SWA11, both DAL-flights. They had launched to the East, via SHV, and then headed towards HOU, but a spiral band of thunderstorms associated with the NE side of Erin "trained" right over the terminal area. They held for awhile, and with BPT in the clear on the east side, they went there.

A really messed up day... HOU, AUS, SAT, PHX, and DAL all had weather, and I have no idea what the weather east of the Mississippi was...since I didn't have anything there, and was otherwise to busy to look..
